by | 8th, November 2011

SIX researchers -Alexey Sitev of Russia, Romain Charles of France, Suhrob Kamolov of Russia, Alexander Smoleevskiy of Russia, Diego Urbina of Italy/Colombia and Wang Yue of China – have been on a 520-day simulation of a flight to Mars.

Says Sitev:

“I actually thought that it would be harder and more stressful for me, and I was surprised how smoothly it went.”

Each was were paid $100,000 to sit in a massive immobile shed.

Big Brother contestants look on in envy.
